Traditional Dishes | Scottish Breakfast
In many hotels and B&Bs you'll be offered a Scottish breakfast, similar to its English counterpart of sausage, bacon and egg, but typically with the addition of local favourites such as black pudding (blood sausage) and potato scones. Porridge is another likely option, properly made with oatmeal and water and cooked with salt; it's traditional to add a little milk, though some folk like to sprinkle on some sugar as well.
You may also be offered strongly flavoured kippers (hot smoked herring) or more delicate "Arbroath smokies" (smoked haddock). Oatcakes (plain, slightly salty oatmeal biscuits) and a 'buttery' - a butter-enriched bread related to the French croissant and popular in the north of Scotland - might feature.
